    its entry level for a graduate. The 2 years experience will be one a one year placement and one year after uni or something.

    First Line != Entry level. Its a common mistake, even here on the forums, but just because the job is a first line job, doesnt mean it is necessarily an entry level position. Whilst it usually holds true, it doesnt always hold true.

    I think it is a pretty hazy ad anyway.

    It looks more like an office/admin support rather than an IT support role and is looking for 2-3 exp in other customer facing jobs ie working on a till.

    The salary doesnt seem to bad though but it looks like a dolly mixture job with most of it being non IT.

    The Job website states its entry level, as we know everyones definition tends to vary on this, since its likely to have been placed by a recruiter or HR person it probably simply means for someone early in their career.

    Also they might wave the 2 year experience or credit any general customer facing role.

    I agree sounds mainly admin job, with some customer support thrown in, salary pretty bad for a graduate in central London but can't be too choosy these days.
